I spoke wayyyy too soon. My run yesterday did not feel anything like spring. It is quite amazing to me that we can go from 19 degrees in the morning to 45 degrees by the afternoon.
Another solo run for me with 8 miles @ 8:13 average.
And then this happened for legit 2 minutes. I can run 11 miles at this point in my fitness but put me on anything that involves cross-training and I cannot last long. Andrew is up to doing the rowing machine for 25 minutes and he loves it. I really want to start incorporating it more because the point in my life where my core was it’s strongest was when I was using the rowing machine often. PS our rowing machine is a Concept 2 and let me know if anyone is wanting a review on it after I’ve used it a bit more.
I’m going to get to know the wall in front of this rower very well over the next few years.
Our Monday morning felt like it REALLY needed these Double Chocolate Muffins from Two Peas and their Pod. They are basically cake in the shape of a muffin and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Everybody in the family was a big fan of them. PS as I was watching Skye eat her muffin I was thinking about how she is just about the same age that Brooke and Knox were when Andrew and I met. Skye is keeping us quite busy at this stage so it made me wonder how in the world we had 2 at this age at the same time while blending a family!
We took advantage of another day of being able to ski for a bit!
Brooke wanted to go on the back mountain where the more advanced runs are and I had a hard time keeping up with her at points.
And then we came home to chicken tortilla soup that I put in the crockpot that morning. Another thing motivating me to cook more often is adding up in my head how expensive it is to take our family out to eat these days (Brooke and Knox’s appetites make them practically need an adult meal too).
I’ve got a few tangents to talk with you today about….
*Skye is very into American Girl dolls right now. She has been playing with my old one from when I was a little girl!
*My sister says that she is positive that she has magnets in her legs and lately I have been feeling like I have a few magnets in my legs lately too.
*The other day I was reading this article from ESPN about whether or not the Tokyo Olympics are really going to happen this summer (start day July 23rd)? I really hope they can happen and from everything I’m reading it seems like they will but I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high!
*I’m a little impressed by my typing skills while holding a baby at the same time, 90% of posts are written this way ha.
*These. So much goodness in one little box.
Favorite type of Girl Scout cookies?
-Samoas 100% first place for me followed by thin mints.
What was the last cross-training that you did? What is your favorite form of cross-training lately?
What do you think? 2021 Summer Olympics going to happen?
Multitasking—> Is it something you are good at? Something you do often or something you try to avoid?
